Tammy is an elementary school teacher from A.R. Ware Elementary in the Staunton City Schools district who is planning to attend the regional NCTM conference in Washington, DC in October 2023.
This experience will help me gain insight into how to support teachers in my building, and in my division to recover student learning and instruction impacted by the pandemic with innovative tools and resources. Attending the conference will allow me to stay on top of current mathematics education trends and collaborate with field leaders.
